Mission San Juan Bautista

AMED in honor of St. John the Baptist and founded in 1797. So much of the original structure remains, and in such enduring beauty, that no traveler should miss a visit to it. It is located near the city of Hollister in San Benito County, not far from Santa Cruz. Considerable "restoration" has been done at San Juan Bautista. Near the old church many of the historic adobe houses of California history are still standing and occupied.
